This matchup features two Atlantic division rivals out of the Atlantic Coast conference.
Louisville has won the last four meetings with Syracuse by an average margin of 31.5 points. Syracuse has been much better this year, while Louisville is practically the worst team in the conference, so expect a different result in this years’ matchup.
The Cardinals have lost six games in a row now, all of them coming in conference play. They have already been eliminated from bowl eligibility and will basically be playing for pride the rest of the season.
Louisville ranks near the bottom of division one football in several offensive categories, including total yards, points per game, and rushing yards per game. Their best offensive stat is their passing offense, which averages 231.9 yards per game and ranks 69th.
The Cardinals defense is one of the worst in the country because they allow an average of 40.8 points per game. They just let Clemson score 77 on them, which makes this their fourth game this season where an opponent has scored 50+ on the Cardinals.
The Orange have clearly had a successful season, but a stretch of two losses earlier this year has taken them out of contention for the ACC title game. they nearly knocked off Clemson before losing and also were beaten by Pittsburgh. If the Orange can win out they will at least be in consideration for a pretty good bowl game.
Syracuse comes in as one of the highest scoring offenses in all of division one football. They score an average of 43.8 points per game, which puts them at #8 in the country. Look for quarterback, Eric Dungey, who is also the leading rusher, to be the key factor in the Syracuse offensive attack.
The Syracuse defense has only been average throughout this season. They allow 28.1 points per game, which ranks 77th in the country. With the amount of points their offense can score, it will take pressure off their defense and they will be able to shut down the Cardinals offense.
